All of our skis are hand sanded and polished to give you a beautiful glossy finish. This provides a clean and refined appearance while also helps to minimize friction when the ski is on edge. We do this because no aspect in the ski should be overlooked and all details matter.
We miter a precise sidewall shelf into all of our skis to help reduce drag while the ski is on edge and also to minimize sidewall engagement while traversing across the mountain. All our sidewalls are then hand sanded and polished.
All of our skis come with a .75 degree base edge bevel with a 2 degree side edge bevel. After the bevels have been set, we run our skis through our Montana Crystal Race robotic tune machine to add a 3D base structure and ceramic disc edge polish. The ceramic disc edge polish improves the grip and edge hold on firm and variable conditions.
We have the first Montana Crystal Race machine ever made and remains to be one of the only machines in North America. With the Crystal Race, we are able to provide proprietary base structure and 3D base structure options, stone ground bases, ceramic disc edge polish, all the while ensuring the highest precision tunes in the world. All of our skis come with a World Cup race ready tune out of the box. This includes a 2 degree edge bevel, .75 degree base bevel, 3D base structure, multiple coats of infrared applied base conditioner, infrared applied graphite wax and polish. ...
The Montana Saphir is our main workhouse. It can do everything the Crystal Race does except ceramic disc edge polish and 3D base structures. The Saphire is an autoload machine and can process 6 pairs of skis at a time. We can also tune snowboards with this machine and provide World Cup race services with it as well.
